"I believe tech and data can do wonders for creativity and make it even more relevant but I think as an industry there’s a danger we jump to use the information, formats and technology, but end up with lazy creative."

Strategist @ George&Dragon

"I think the best piece of advice I've had is to never take a job in advertising for an agency’s reputation or the brands it services. The only way to maximise the chances you have to be successful, happy and fulfilled in your career is to work with people that you like, respect, and can learn from."

“A friend of mine works at a startup where they leave stickers on each others’ desks or laptops if they’ve done a good job that week, and because I’m six years old with a washi-tape problem, that really appeals to me!”

"getting into planning is still one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do (aside from my Russian oral exam in uni) but one thing that really pushed me is switching my attitude to: not if I make it… but when I make it. Fake it til you do."

"Facebook tells us what people like and do, Google tells us what people search for, Youtube tells us what people watch… What if Tinder started telling us how people would like to be seen?"
